Working with Vistage chairs, Ohio State faculty and a unique set of NCMM-Vistage data, Tom helped crack the talent-planning code. In his presentation, he will share what mid-sized companies need to do to manage talent, gauge their bench strength, identify key positions and players, and develop succession plans and talent pools.
